Your cards are just so lovely - That vellum overlay on the first pairs so well with the delicate butterflies! And I love the artful sprinkling of sequins on the second. Thank you so much for linking up to support the Hop to Stop!

Thanks for the heads-up. Just took a delightful tour of your blog posts. What a treat as is the card you made for the Stop Hop. Kind of you to offer the digi but, unfortunately, I can't ever get them to work for me. Thank you any way.

Well I don't know what's going on. How on earth did I miss this post? I'm glad you mentioned it today because I didn't remember entering your giveaway and thought I had better check it out. So glad I did - these are absolutely beautiful! You know I love butterflies! Wow! I can't decide which one I love more. Maybe the one with the embossing - they're both beautiful! Wonderful cards for the hop! Such a great message on the second card!
